Friends Of Liverpool

With Liverpool facing a crunch-game against table-toppers Chelsea on Sunday and needing to win a crucial game against Napoli in the Europa League on Thursday, what kind of a team should Roy Hodgson pick against the Italians?
Should he stick with the side that has won back-to-back wins in the Premier League or should he stay with the ‘second-string’ side which has done so well in Europe this season?
Pepe Reina should start in goal especially after Jones’ howlers in the reserves at the weekend.
The back four is a conundrum.
Should he start with Carra, Kelly or play, fit-again, Johnson at right-back.
Maybe he should start Johnson in right-midfield as he is better going forward than he is as a defender.
Should he rest Imperious Sotirios and play Jamie and Skrtel at centre-back, with maybe Fabio Aurelio, finally getting a run-out at left-back?
Midfield: Jonjo Shelvey, Jay Spearing and Christian Poulson along with the forgotten man, Milan Jovanovic should all make the side.
I suppose we should give Ryan Babel, yet another chance along with David Ngog upfront.
With Sunday in mind, that’s the team that Roy might pick.
The main thing is, he should have the likes of Torres, Stevie G and Meireles on the bench if we have to rescue the game.
We currently top the group on 5 pts but we really need to win this game to maintain our grip on qualification out of this section of the Europa League group stages.
